Having gone through what was a painful process of getting a website live before, I expected this time to be the same. Simply, I was wrong. The overall process from initial design to final launch was smooth and surprisingly effortless. I attribute this to Thomas Digital Design's (Victor's) desire to get things exactly right and just how I wanted them, despite a few more iterations than he probably hoped. The end result is a fantastic website that is getting great reviews from our clients. All in all, I couldn't be happier and am happy to have Victor and Thomas Digital Design as a valued partner going forward.
I recently hired Victor to rebrand and develop a new website for my business as a Social Media Strategist and he knocked it out of the park! I now have a stunning, highly functional site that delivers on all of my objectives and elevates my brand to new heights. He was so professional, responsive and genius in his approach to the project and I am happy to welcome him into the Arque Creative family of top web design talent. He gets my highest recommendation and I'd be thrilled to work with him again.
100% Custom design starting in Photoshop. No pre-made templates used ever.
Social Media Integration
All websites come with social media integration to sites such as, facebook, twitter and linkedin.
We develop custom functionality for your website tailored to your company and client's needs.
Websites come with one on one personal coaching done over the phone or via skype.
Wordpress Custom Design
We specialize in custom Wordpress design and development. Wordpress is an open source CMS, meaning it is a free tool to manage the content of your website without having to be a web designer or developer.
Some people have the misconception that Wordpress is just for blogs, or equates to cheap templates. While Wordpress was originally created as a blogging platform, today it is a fully developed Content Management System for 'real' websites, and is used by many of the top 100 websites on the web.
All of our designs are 100% custom starting in photoshop and we do not use pre-made templates.
The number one question we get is, "How quickly can you have the site finished?". We're committed to delivering quality design and development at very fast speeds. It should take about 7 business days to see the first photoshop mockup of the design. Once the final draft of the design is approved it takes another 7-9 business days to develop (depending on the size of the project.) If you have all the materials ready on your end, in terms of site content and sitemap, we can have your new site up on the web in as quickly as 30 days.
Search Engine Optimization
All of our sites are developed and optimized to be easily found by Google. We make sure that your meta tags, keywords and link structure are properly configured, and also create an xml site-map of your website which we submit to Google insuring proper and quick indexing. When it comes to SEO don't just talk the talk; if you Google 'San Francisco Web Design' we regularly show up near the top of Page 1 for that highly competitive term.
CSS3 & HTML 5 Coding
All sites are developed with the latest markup in CSS3 and HTML5. Websites are designed to be viewed properly across all popular browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, iOS and Android devices.
Our sites are compatible throughout all mobile devices including iPhones, iPads and Android OS. We do not use Flash Animation in any of our designs and all slideshows, galleries and videos are viewable on all iOS devices. We also can develop your site for mobile responsive capabilities, meaning the layout and design of your site adjusts based on the device you are on. Alternatively we can create a separate mobile theme of your site for hand held devices. Both of these options involve additional costs and may not be right for everyone.
We Support Bay Area Youth
We believe in giving back to the community. Victor Thomas is an active member of The Guardsmen, a 75 year old charity that raises upwards of $1.7 Million annually to fund scholarships and outdoor education for disadvantaged Bay Area youths. As part of our contribution to this great organization we have designed, developed and maintained several websites for the various fundraising events held by the Guardsmen. In addition Victor Thomas personally raises over $4,000 a year and volunteers over 200 hours a year to The Guardsmen.
